Earlier today, Underworld made an official announcement via Facebook that they were giving away their 2002 album “A Hundred Days Off” free via download on their website. The album includes the fantastic tracks “2 Months Off” and “Dinosaur Adventure 3D”.
“In celebration of Underworld being appointed Music Directors of the Opening Ceremony of the London 2012 Olympic games and with today marking 100 days to go, we would like to give you A Hundred Days Off (the album) for free.”
This album was quite a milestone for the band, and all eyes were on them as it was the first release after the departure of Darren Emerson in 2001. However, they proved they hadn’t missed a beat and the album received largely positive reviews (Metacritic gives it a 71/100). NME gave it 8/10, saying “Their best album since their ‘Dubnobasswithmyheadman’ debut, Karl and Rick have pulled off a comeback in fine style and laid some demons to rest”.
After working on The RiverRun Project and composing the soundtrack to “Breaking & Entering” with Gabriel Yared, the band later released the impressive 2007 follow up “Oblivion With Bells“, and “Barking” in 2010. “Anthologie“, spanning hits from 1992-2012 was released in January this year.
